For all of those of you who purchased tickets for "the dead" be prepared. I'm hoping this is an isolated incident but a friend of mine just informed me of a very disturbing situation. he ordered through GDTS for Worcester right off the bat. When the general sale came around he reached out to them to make sure he had the tix, if not he could go through ticketmaster. They told him, "if you placed an order for that show it will be honored." Weeks go by and no word. Finally the get a hold of him and tell him that the ticket range he submitted has "sold out" but they would be more than happy to sell him tickets in the higher price range.

I don't know where to begin on this one. While I had no intention of seeing them on the tour I also didn't begrudge them from touring and charging what they wanted. However, this sounds like a bait and switch. Curious if anyone else got this act as well.

I'm sorry to hear that. I was disappointed in their eagerness to speed through the dates from venue to venue. Only a select few stops are two-day events. No time to relax. Oh well. I look forward to hearing the shows here -- for nothing. In the mean time, I can re-live 1974 right now. And tickets are cheap!

Will Robinson was more of an ABB kind of a guy. He hung out with Duane Allman. The robot was only trying to warn him to "just say no".

Wikipedia >>

Lost In Space is remembered, at least, from oft-repeated lines of the Robot, such as "Warning! Warning!", "That does not compute", and "Danger, Will Robinson!" Smith's frequent put-downs of the Robot are also still popular ("You bubble-headed booby!") as are his trademark lines: "Oh, the pain...the pain!" and "Never fear, Smith is here!" One of Jonathan Harris's last roles was providing the voice of the illusionist praying mantis "Manny" in Disney's "A Bug's Life," where Harris used "Oh, the pain...the pain!" while drenched in Boysenberry "blood" to embellish a faux bird-attack near the end of the film.

You have to cut them slack.The old guys got big expenses for this tour...they need big bucks.All the supplies,wheelchair access buses,incontinence supplies,bedwetting alarms...all that stuff is expensive and seniors need that stuff to be able to leave the house for any length of time.Thats why the price switch....

Don't forget the multiple tour buses.
They can't stand each other.They're only in it for the money.They wouldn't spend anymore off-stage time together than need be.

I hope you are wrong about the bait and switch, that would be truly disappointing. In terms of protesting the high price of these tix, I believe that everyone sitting between the stage and where I am sitting should get up and walk out as soon as the band starts playing. That'll show 'em.

I hate to say it, but I'm not surprised. The "cheaper" tickets were such a small portion of most of the venues that they appeared to be placed there just to quiet the uproar. Demand for these tickets far exceeded the supply.

In fact, I found it difficult to even find which sections the less expensive tickets were in at most of the venues.

Porbably the section right behind the toilet bowl. Even the nosebleeds at MSG were over $100.

Anyway, I've got my tix for D Byrne at Radio City this Sat night!!! Should be a good time.
